OVER BY TAFT
Republican Majority Believed
Restored in Senate on
TEMPORARY TRUCE CALLED
Long and Short Haul Clause Re
ceives Most Attention, but Vote
Will Jfot Be Made Test of
Loyalty by President.
"WASHINGTON, May 8. Under a flag
a truce hostilities between the conserva
tive Republicans and insurgents of the
Senate over the Administration railroad
bill have, ceased.
They will be renewed probably when
Senators Cummins and IoIliver return
Thursday from Iowa, where they have
gone to open the campaign. Senator
Aldrlch lg expected to return from Rhode
Island Tuesday. If he should attempt
to precipitate a vote on any Important
amendment. Senators La -Follette and
Clapp will undertake to hold the floor.
Meanwhile the White House will be
the scene of real activities, the President
having undertaken to bring into line
some of the so-called "near insurgents,"
whose attitude on the railroad bill has
been a matter of doubt.
Needed Recruits Obtained.
That work was begun yesterday and
it way asserted that Senators Gamble and
Crawford of South Dakota would Join
the 45 regular Republicans canvassed,
making the necessary "all Republican"
majority for the Administration pro
gramme. While an understanding was reached
In the House that the vote on the rail
road bill would be taken Tuesday, it now
seems certain the Democrats will seek
to have the hill recommitted with In

In the Senate the long and short haul
clause is receiving more attention than
the stock and bond sections. The Presi
dent and the Attorney-General are press
ing for their retention and the regular
Republicans will make a stand for the
sections. Some of the regulars, how
ever, would be pleased If they were elim
inated. Legal Complications JFeared.
Among thope who are understood to
doubt the wisdom of their retention are
Senators Aldrich, Elkins and Root, all
of whom concede the possibility of legal
complications over their conflict with the
otate laws. The President is not dis
posed to yield, however, and Attorney
General Wlckersham is represented as
willing to vouch for the validity of the
No special effort is being made to hold
Republicans in line against the long and
short haul amendment. It Is generally
recognized that local conditions are such
that many of the Senators from the in
terior states cannot avoid supporting this
provision. But the regulars, count confi
dently upon making up among the Demo
crats the losses on their own side of the

those in favor of the amendment say
that they . will get 15 Democrats in op
position to the provision. Their conten
tion is that most of the Democratic Sen
ators whose states skirt the Atlantic,
Pacific and Gulf Coasts, as well as some
of those along the Mississippi, will ap
prove the provision. If they get the 15
Democratic votes and hold the 40 Re
publicans they will have a majority of

will vote for the amendment are Bev

imoot and Sutherland. The supporters
of the provision hope also to get Sena
tor Jones' vote.
Loyalty Test Not Imposed.
The President is said to be urging Re
publican Senators to keep the long and
short haul question ' out of the bill, but
is not making it a test of party loyalty.
Me takes the position that most of the
amendments suggested would have the
effect of placing railroad charges purely
on a mlk'age basis. Refusing to concede
that such would be the result, the pro
ponents believe that If the provision
should be inserted he would not veto the
bill on that account, as has been as
eerted that he would do.
On other points they find the Presi
dent most insistent upon maintaining
strict party discipline. Senator Bramlo
gee. who is among the staunchrst of the
stalwarts, is reported by his colleagues
as to have advised the Chief Executive
to quit "kissing the insurgents" and to
"get out his tomahawk." aiid the Presi
dent is mid to have expressed no dis
approval of the suggestion.

land under this project, every acre is
In private ownership today. The Leas
Imrg project in New Mexico is also ex
clusively in private ownership. In North
Dakota the YVilliston project; embracing
an Irrigable area of 12.Vrt acres, con
tains only 433 acres of public land, while
the Garden City project In Kansas is
all In private ownership.
Public Lands Come First.
In answer to a question by Senator
Sutherland. Secretary Ballinger admitted
that the reclamation act contemplated
the irrigation, of some private land nec
essarily so, "but." he added. "I would
consider a fair interpretation of the act
that there must be an appreciable
amount of public lands to warrant the
Government in going, into any project.
I have always been of the belief that
the matter of private lands within a
project was a matter incidental rather
than as a primary condition. I do not
believe the act is susceptible of inter
pretation' as contemplating the location
of a project where the lands are practi
cally all private lands.
"However." added the Secretary,
speaking of expediency, "we are into
these projects, whether they are public
or private lands, and I do not intend
to raise any question about that as to
projects that the Government has its
money invested in. Most of these proj-
ects ore now practically completed, and
our main question now is to get money
out that is in them. I feel that it is the
duty of the department to proceed as
speedily as possible to complete the work
that il has undertaken and cover into
the reclamation fund the moneys it has
already spent in the construction of these
Secretary Ballinger also devoted some
attention to faulty projects that have
been undertaken In times past. He al
luded to the Hondo project, where a
reservoir has been ' completed at a cost
of J344.000, but where there has never
been any water since the dam was com
pleted, hence no irrigation on the Hondo
project, an all-private-land project. He
cited that Instance, and added that he
had been informed the dam would not
hold water, if the water was there. He
also criticised the Deer Flat reservoir
on the Boise-Payette project in Idaho.
That reservoir leaks badly. Last Sum
mer the Secretary rode over that reser
voir site, covering about 10.000 acres.
There he found men were being em
ployed to fill gopher holes, through
which the water was supposed to be
fieeping. The Secretary said he deemed
it a waste of money to fill gopher holes
on J0.0CS acres of land, especially as, in
his judgment, there are difficulties in the
substratum in that reservoir that the
service did not contmplate.
About JS0O.O0O has been spent in build
ing this reservoir, and as yet the Rec
lamation Service has been unable to
srtore water in it. The Williston project
in North Dakota, the Secretary pointed
out, is proving an expensive one for" the
settlers, the maintenance charge, be
cause of the cost of pumping, being $2'
an acre annually. This cost, added to
the cost of the water right, is more than
some of the land will bear.

FASTING PHOTOGRAPHER GETS
Mr. Sympathizer" Gives Advice,
but Man Who Has Taken Nothing
for 18 Days, Refuses Aid.
Albert S. Houghton, the fasting pho
tographer, received an anonymous let
ter late last week in which an individ
ual who signs himself "Sympathizer"
advises Houghton to take a drop of
carbolic acid in a glass of milk, and
to increase the dose to four drops.
"Does the man want to kill me?" he
Mr. "Sympathizer" explains that
when he eats three meals a day he is
attacked with stomach trouble which
lasts for three years, and that during
that time he is "like a drunk person."
After explaining about the various
nostrums he has tried, he says:
"If you suffer with stomacli trouble,
it might be well to take one drop of
carbolic acid in a glass of milk about
one hour before eating. This I have
taken also. The party who told me
about It told me to increase a drop a
week until I got up to four. But I was
satisfied with one. Hoping this will
help you. I am, A Sympathizer."
Mr. Houghton says he is not yet
hungry. He hopes he will be soon, as
he admits he is missing "a lot of good
things." He does not fear that he will
suffer permanently from his fast, as he
thinks "a proper fast can't injure any
one unless the person has organic
trouble of the internal organs."
"When a man ridicules an idea, he
should have some foundation for it,"
said the photographer, in referring to
recent criticisms of the press. "With
some people ridicule without a basis' is
all right. The trouble is that if peo
ple find some short cut to health it will
kill the doctor business. There are
plenty of dictors who are honest and
sincere. But they don't all treat their
patients from cause to effect. If a
man's system is clogged, the thing to
do is to cut oft the food supply, and
give the system a chance to eliminate
the poisons. 'They who come to scoff

TWO ll'REN IDEAS
. FULL BY WAYSIDE
"State Cabinet" and "County
Commission" Plans Laid
Aside for While.
REVIVED LATER, SAYS U'REN
Dissensions Rumored In Peoples
Power League of Oregon Said to
Be Cause of Withdrawal of
Radical Schemes From Field.
W. S. U'ren, of Oregon City, head of the
People's Power League of Oregon, and
chief exponent of the score or more bills
and constitutional amendments proposed
through initiative in the approaching Fall
election, last night confirmed the aban
donment by the league of two of the
principal measures. These have come to
be known as the 'state cabinet form of
government" and the "county commis
sion form of government." The lay tles
are given the measures by the leagued
These two probably were the widest
diversions from the present form of gov
ernment in both state and county yet
proposed in Oregon. In the event of their
adoption, the present system would have
been completely revolutionized.
For the past seven weeks there is
rumored to have been intense dissen
sion within the ranks of the Peoples"
Power League. This is said to have
contributed to the acquiescence in
abandoning these two propositions. The
assumption generally, however, is that
the storm of protest agains t them
from every section of the state Insured
their certain defeat as well as endan
gering the possible success, as they
saw it, of the other bills.
Mr. U'Ren Explains.
Quite a different face, however, was
given the matter by Mr. U'Ren last
"We have decided to abandon them
for the present." he said. "We think
it betteT to discuss them further be
fore submitting them to the voters."
The several measures have been given
wide publicity throughout tho state by
the circulation of a pamphlet with the
caption "Please Read." In it the pro
posed measures are treatlsed minutely
and the full texts of several are given.
Signed to this brochure the names of 19
ptrsons, more or less prominent, appear.
This was done in order to comply with
the corrupt practices act. Some of the
people whose names were attached to the
pamphlet, it Is said, deny authority for
the use of their names to all of the meas
ures, practically repudiating the action In
sending them out. This is said to have
been one of the main causes of dissension
in the league. While all wtre willing to
subscribe to a few of fhe measures, it is
said, nearly all held objections to others
and none was willing to subscribe to the
"We Intend to continue our-, cam
paign for the adoption of the other
measures," said Mr. U'Ren. "The pro
portional representation idea will be
prosecuted to the last. We are very
anxious to extend the primary law so
that members of each party in select
ing their delegates to the National
party conventions may express their
choice for Presidential and vice-Presidential
Measures Were Radical.
In the "cabinet" amendment to the
constitution that was dropped, the Gov
ernor was to be practically the Head of
the state and county governments. He
was to be authorized to appoint the
County Sheriffs and County Attorneys
and a State Cabinet composed of the Attorney-General,
Secretary of State, State
Treasurer. State Printer. Superintendent
of Public Instruction. Secretary of Labor
and the State Business Manager. He
was to hold office six years and could
not be a candidate to succeed himself.
The right was reserved to the people to
recall any one of his appointees or him
self. Under the county commission form,
three directors were to be elected to
serve four years to have complete charga
of the county business. .In their election
the preferential system was to be used.
A county business manager was proposed,
as in the case of the state, and all other
county employes, excepting the judges.
RESTORATION IS REFUSED
Petitioners Told Timber Is Needed

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, May 8. Through Senator Jones,
residents of Conconully and Loomisv
Wash., asked that lands In the Chelan
forest reserve in close proximity to both
communities and lying below the 4500-foot
elevation be restored to entry.
That request was denied 'today by Sec
retary Wilson, who explains that the
lands form an important part of the
watershed of Salmon River upon which
the Okanogan irrigation project is de
pendent for its water and that if these
lands should be denuded, the water sup
ply would be diminished and in conse
quence the irrigable area would be re
duced. GRESHAM BEATS MONTA VILLA

out ahead. Brown and Boyton played
well for Montavilla. the latter made a
beautiful catch of Parrott's hard drive
in the fifth inning which looked good
for a homer.
The Gresham team has been ma

BERLIN, May 8. (Special.) It is of
ficially announced that the imperial part
of Roosevelt's visit here has been vir
tually abandoned. The Kaiser, having
regard for his own feelings and the pro
prieties of the occasion, has decided not
to meet Roosevelt at the railway station
on his arrival, where Joyous demonstra
tions on the part of the people would be
certain to occur, or to entertain him as a
guest at the palace. His majesty has
also decided not to attend the projected
official dinners, either at Ambassador
Hill's or the Imperial Chancellor's resi
dence. Roosevelt, his wife and Miss Ethel, on
their arrival will proceed direct to the
American Embassy, where they will be
the Ambassador's guests during their
stay. After breakfasting at the Embassy,
the party will go in automobiles to Pots
dam, where they will meet the Kaiser
and his family. They will stay to lunch
which will be' purely a domestic affair.
Roosevelt will have other opportunities
for talks with the Kaiser, but these will
all be matters for subsequent arrange
ment. The Kaiser will attend Roose
velt's lecture at the university, as this
is purely a university function.
It has been further decided that the
reception given by the American colony
and the non-official German society will
be held at tho Embassy as previously
arranged. This decision was taken after
the American Ambassador through the
British. Ambassador ascertained the opin
ion of the court and of government au
thorities in England.
